When I think about life experiences and trauma, a word that comes to mind is resilience - a circle of resilience. As resilient humans, we continue to push against the obstacles life throws at us in order to experience more happy and blissful experiences. In order to experience the exciting and more enjoyable moments in life, we must have the knowledge of what it feels like to trek through the painful ones. This creates a cycle of overcoming the heavy and painful moments in life, to be able to enjoy the more peaceful and grounding ones.
Resilience is a mindset where we can choose to embrace life’s challenges, embracing all the highs and lows of the journey. Whether you want to heal your trauma, mood disorder & relationships or become unstuck from anxiety and depression, I hope as a client you are able to find your inner resilience and embrace the self-healing journey.
Life can get heavy, and when it does it’s important that you have the skills and knowledge to effectively cope and process through your emotions. In our therapy space, we won't be able to erase any trauma, anxiety & depression, or distressing life experiences. But what we can do is alter how you engage and think about yourself, others, and the world so you can lead a confident life, even if it gets painful.
When working with me you can expect a compassionate, nonjudgmental and encouraging space where you feel comfortable to communicate life stressors and dive deeper into the root of emotional patterns. I'll empower you to explore your emotions and thoughts, to speak openly about challenging life experiences, and explore what ways of coping best suit you.
I have experience working with people of color, traumatic experiences, folks in the LGBTQIA+ community, individuals struggling with eating & mood disorders and those wanting to resolve interpersonal issues.
I'm currently taking new clients and would love to schedule a phone consultation to discuss your therapy needs and see if we are a good fit.
Here is a little about me!
Outside of the therapeutic space you can find me engaging in movement in some form such as dancing, riding my bike or taking my cute cat Cosmo on a walk. I enjoy knitting, reading (or more so collecting) books, live music and spending a day at the beach.
A quote I enjoy : "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." - Maya Angelou.
